Narration


This is from an article on “Stethoscopists and Reformers” and it talks about how stethoscopes used to be the new technology. Here’s the quote: “Later, as resistance to stethoscopes among doctors abated, some patients even demanded that stethoscopy be part of their examination.” There a certainly some parallels between the stethoscope and point of care ultrasound. Actually, the stethoscope is much less power and versatile than ultrasound and I think we can do a lot more with ultrasound. We can talk about it.
